Dermaplaning is similar to shaving in that both use a blade to remove unwanted facial hair, but the similarities stop there. While the dermaplaning treatment rids the skin of the fine vellus hair (peach fuzz), it also encourages skin cell renewal and leaves the face looking refreshed and more youthful.
IMPORTANT: You should hold off on dermaplaning if you have a tan, sunburn, active acne, a flaring rosacea breakout, or an inflammatory skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, the procedure can worsen these issues.
It's a myth that your facial hair will become either thicker or darker after dermaplaning. It just isn't possible for your hair to do this, as dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment. The hair will grow back, but it won't change colour or thickness.
You can enjoy this treatment every three to four weeks to maintain a smooth, radiant appearance.
